Public clouds are the commonly taken approaches to deploying cloud computing. Computing resources such as servers, storage and networks are owned and operated by a third-party cloud service provider and delivered over the internet. Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Office 365 are great examples of public cloud services.
With public cloud, all hardware, software and other supporting infrastructure are owned and managed by the cloud provider and shared with other businesses. You will gain access to these resources typically under a subscription model in which you will only pay for what you consume; similar to the way that electricity is consumed.
At Synergise IT, we utilise public cloud deployments to deliver mission critical and frequently accessed applications such as web-based email, online/offline applications, storage and other software platforms such as CRM and security.
Public clouds can also be combined with Private clouds to create a hybrid cloud. One such technology case supporting this model is for your business to take advantage of cloud bursting to clear more space and scale computing services to the public cloud only if or when your computing demand increases.
